I'm.going to try this
I'm not New Mexican but I understand. Breakfast burritos christmas style at The Pantry in Santa Fe might be proof of a god.
next time you are getting a fountain drink, 50/50 diet and regular cola. Perfection.
I lived in Santa Fe for 14 months 20 years ago, and I still order a green chile cheeseburger anywhere I can get one (it's invariably jalapenos, but I'll take 'em).
Every burrito christmas...
Plaza Diner menu said: "Tourists: we are not responsible if the chile is too hot!"
I miss The Shed something fierce. Oooh, and the El Molero fajita cart. :-(
re: cream cheese
I used to be desperate for quality fats on the ship I worked on, and would occasionally just eat slabs of cream cheese.
Back home (Lebanon) watermelon and haloumi cheese is a very normal summer dish
Not so unusual but kinda not so obvious.
Ice cream and milk, mix it up. Basically a milk shake in a bowl or cup. Add egg yolk, too to enrich. Quick fast dessert for myself when I want more fancy ice cream type stuff.
I never would have thought to put cheese and watermelon together until I read it somewhere about 10 years ago. I will definitely try it with haloumi this summer.
Oh the watermelon with salty cheese(Feta) is a winner in my book, with som fresh basil or mint to add, even better. Just like strawberries do well with quality Balsamic vinegar, the same also goes for watermelon.
A while back I had a chocolate cake dessert of some kind at a restaurant, don't really remember much about it because I was completely engrossed in tasting the things they served on the side of the main ingredient. Un-sweetened wheat beer ice cream with a salty caramel sauce. Definitely the most interesting dessert I've had in a long time.
Poached pear in a red wine and licorice sauce also something that hit a note with me.
It works so well on so many levels, you should!
Makes me think of the rosemary ice cream the local shop occasionally makes.
I add a little yellow mustard and a dash of vinegar in tuna or chicken salad. Wakes it up.
Is that really a strange combo? I do that all the time haha..
Let it be known I do NOT recommend checking the thread out, as Im still a bit nauseous from reading some of the sh*t people do. A couple aren't bad and those are still as bad / worse than anything here. The rest are inhumane crimes.
Why did you post the link then?
beer & froot loops
Theer’s a spot in one of the main squares in Nice in the summer that does 100+ flavors of gelato. Rosemary, thyme, lavendar, rose, basil...you name it and they’ve got got it. The thyme was a favorite for us.
At home last year I did a foie gras dinner, finished with a foie grad gelato over a strawberry tart drizzled with honey and a good aged balsamic. Prep for it was next level time consuming but it was so good I can’t imagine why it doesn’t show up on other menus. 8 people at dinner, everyone asked for seconds of it.
This thread proves to me that yummy is in the tongue of the beholder.
I must confess that some of the combos sound like a game I played with my kids when they were very little- who could think up the worst food combination. It turns out that 3-5 year old minds are particularly skilled at this task- think bananas and mustard, PB&J with mayonnaise or fried underwear.
Then again, some I’ve never thought of but still sound pretty terrific- go figure!
My mom used to make a snack that was a banana sliced in half vertically. She would then put mayo on the flat side and dust it with paprika. I haven’t had it in a long time but I remember not hating it.
I must admit, that one doesn’t sound good to me, but then again, I’ve never tried it so who knows?
I grew up eating mac and cheese with ketchup. Still probably my favorite comfort food.
pasta, Boston baked beans, garlic sauce kale topped w fried egg and salsa Verdi. It just works.
Mango and Bagoong (Fermented Shrimp Paste)
My in-laws are here from Taipei. They brought snacks. Potato chip that tastes like a salty duck egg yoke.
Kim Chee on Costco Salmon burger with grilled onions, tomato, dill pickle, sesame bun.
What's a Christmas burrito? My guess is both red and green chiles?
That's right or red & green salsa
Is weed legal in N.C.? Sounds like a serious case of the munchies!
Steak a la cart. Servers take weird notice when I don't purchase any sides. Maybe it's because they fail on the upsell.
Separate names with a comma.
